Have you used RestAssured or similar tools for integration tests? Specifically, where a test URL is built with various parameters, sent, and the response data (XML/JSON) is finally verified.
If so, have any interesting patterns or anti-patterns emerged from this work?
I enjoy your blog a lot. It has really helped inform my work.
I haven’t used RestAssured or similar tools for integration tests. It looks like a nice DSL/syntactic sugar around consuming/validating REST services.
In the past when I’ve written REST integration tests I’ve just called them using in built libraries, and have used Postman quite a lot for manual testing and debugging.
